A tale of two ladders

Ladder process

I seem to have ladders on the brain right now. I’m piecing a ladder into my Lone Robin quilt. Prompt #4 is roads, paths, ladders, and steps. Each space between theĀ  rungs on this ladder is at least 1/4 inch closer together than the previous one, as if they are smaller, receding into the distance. I’m also making a tiny ladder out of sticks to go with the fairy door I made for the tree outside our house.

Here is the process of piecing the ladder into the background.

Here’s the ladder sewn together. I’m not sure if I’m done with it. I might change it.
